Water Treatment Systems
We Treat Your Water Right!
From revere osmosis systems to soft water systems, Gator Drain and Plumbing offers unparalleled convenience and superior work when it comes to your home or business plumbing system. It can be confusing to understand whether you need a water treatment system or not, but our experts can provide advice and recommendations on the best option for you as a home or business owner. The two main types of water treatment systems we offer are water softeners and reverse osmosis systems. We would be happy to come out to your property and discuss your individual needs.
Do you have hard water? You may have hard water if you experience the following:
- Difficulty in getting a good lather of soap in the shower
- Metallic taste to the water
- Orange/red stains in showers, sinks and toilets
- Water spots on dishes
- Rust colored stains on white clothing
Technically, you have hard water if tests reveal your water hardness is above 1 GPG (grains per gallon). We can provide simple testing to determine the hardness level of your water and suggest solutions to fix it. The good news is, you don’t have to live with hard water forever! We sell and install high-quality water softener systems that can reduce water contaminants and scale buildup, plus ensure a longer life out of your appliances. The EPA defines water as that containing high levels of calcium, magnesium and other alkaline minerals commonly found in tap water. Water hardness can also be determined by the pH scale, which measures substances on a scale from 1 to 14, with 7 being neutral. The EPA says a normal water pH is between 5.5 and 9, according to Live Science.
Cation exchange water softeners are one solution to the problem of hard water, removing the calcium and magnesium ions and exchanging them with sodium (or potassium) ions. Water softeners essential go through a regeneration process to flush the system of too many ions and recharge it with new sodium ions, with the capacity to process up to 25 gallons of water each day or 10,000 gallons each year. Here at Gator Drain and Plumbing, we stay up to date with the latest technologies so you always receive the best service and installation from professionals you can trust.
Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse osmosis systems are similar but different. These types of systems use water purification technology utilizing a semipermeable membrane to take out ions, molecules and large particles from drinking water. Through applied pressure, reverse osmosis removes many impurities from water, such as bacteria. The solute stays on the pressurized side of the membrane while the pure solvent can pass through. Sounds technical but the process is actually very simple. The result is you get the purest water you can possibly get through your tap or well water. Again, we partner with the best manufacturers to provide quality, efficient water treatment systems that meet and exceed your needs.
